As the leaves begin to change color and the turkeys and squirrels make it difficult to navigate the road, the Moultonborough Lions have an active schedule of events.

We will be doing several school vision screenings this month (we did Moultonborough Academy, grades 6-12, on September 17 and screened 199 students and staff). So far we have been to Gilmanton (and screened 174 students), Sandwich (and screened (64 students), and Holderness (screened 142 students) for the individual student scan for five different vision problems. If a student shows a visual irregularity, he/she is given (or mailed by the school nurse) a paper with the results to take to an eye doctor. We will be in Gilford on the 28th of the month.

We also provided free vision screening at the Sandwich Fair on October 8, 9, and 10 from 10 am to 4 pm. Our white shed is located against the fence opposite the road with all the food venders and on the way to the rides. You can’t miss us. Stop on by; it takes less than a minute to have yourself or any member of your family screened.

We will have one more live sale date of raffle tickets in front of EM Heaths on Saturday, October 8 from 9:30 – 2:30. Stop on by on your way to or from the Fair. At the end of the month, we will be mailing out a letter and tickets to people who have not had a chance to purchase them earlier. The last chance to buy tickets for the $5,000 prize will be at the Holiday Fair at the Moultonborough Central School on Saturday, December 4 before the 1:00 drawing of the winner.

And thanks to two members, our adopted spot, Sutherland Park, is all set for the season.
